  1. Brand new to smoking have helped a few buddies out over the years and been doing alot of reading as of late. Been putting some $$ away for the past three year while over here in the desert and have decided I want pursue catering back yard bbq to start out and move up to larger events as the business grows. If anyone knows of any publications concerning start up or running a bbq catering service I would appriciate a push in the right direction.

    Welcome boudreaux5877,

    I'm not any help to your catering question but wanted to say hello and thanks for your service! I'm a Persian Gulf vet from 1990. I wish the UN would have let us finish the job while we were there. Maybe you guys (and girls) wouldn't have to be there now?

    What you are doing is a great and noble thing. You are all Heroes. I know there are many Americans that feel the same way.

    Good luck on your future endeavors. Stay safe and God bless!

    Hey there, welcome and thanks!!

    I spent some time over in the ashtray (USMC) so [​IMG] to you. BTW, I had my fair share of cammel meat and pretty much preferred an MRE over that. But, I never had a chance to smoke it.

    So, I think that's your first mission.

    P.S. tell all your buddies thanks from all of us.

    Edit: I just saw you're USMC as well. I knew a Boudreaux from "The Basic School" 4-88.
